Loop - A north London yarn boutique. i'd been here before but must have dismissed it as 'just another expensive yarn shop'. it wasn't until - um - somebody, don't remember who, blogged about it today that i actually had a good root around, specifically in the designers section. there's a host of fab handmade textiley stuff, not all of it impossibly expensive. yum. let's face it i won't actually be buying anything, but it's good for inspiration and there's plenty to read too.
